veterinary research technician for marmosets, tamarins
veterinary research technician 1. (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 29, 2015
I was hired as veterinary research technician and everything what I did was 90% of husbandry, moving heavy cages, changing cages and cleaning areas another 5%.
And rest of 5% was blood draw, rectal swaps etc.
I was expecting more medical stuff to do, but If I would like to be animal keeper, I will probably go to the Zoo.
My supervisor was awesome lady, my lead technician was the most horrible person. Never ever tells you, good job.
I heard only do this, do this one, you are to slow, etc
This company is very good with all benefits or if you working at the lab, but if you are down there and you tried to go up to different position it is hard and takes years.
I was able to go to the lunch after 5 hr of hard work, this is against the law. I had barely time to even go and take a drink if my lead technician was not behind my back.
hard work pulling those big cages, this is more animalkeeper postion
